Climate Change Information Project - December 2012 Digest Vol. 6

Below are articles from the Climate Change Information Project.  The focus of the project is to get scientifically-based articles relating to climate change disseminated to the broader public. Currently, most of this information tends to stay within the scientific community.

 

Northeast U.S. Sees Second Driest November in More Than a Century

 ScienceDaily (Dec. 5, 2012) ­ Even though Hurricane Sandy helped create wet start to the month for several states, November 2012 went into the record books as the second-driest November since 1895 in the Northeast. With an average of 1.04 inches or precipitation, the region received only 27 percent of its normal level. For full story go tohttp://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/12/121205142325.htm

Four-Degrees Briefing for the World Bank: The Risks of a Future Without Climate Policy


ScienceDaily (Nov. 19, 2012) — Humankind's emissions of greenhouse gases are breaking new records every year. Hence we're on a path towards 4-degree global warming probably as soon as by the end of this century. For full story http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/11/121119104842.htm

The 84-page document, “Turn Down the Heat: Why a 4°C  (7.2 degrees Fahrenheit)  Warmer World Must Be Avoided,” was written for the World Bank by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and Climate Analytics.  View the document

ScienceDaily (Nov. 27, 2012) ­ Sea levels are rising 60 per cent faster than the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) central projections, new research suggests. For complete storyhttp://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/11/121128093911.htm

 

Record High for Global Carbon Emissions

 ScienceDaily (Dec. 2, 2012) ­ Global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are set to rise again in 2012, reaching a record high of 35.6 billion tonnes -- according to new figures from the Global Carbon Project, co-led by researchers from the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of East Anglia (UEA).

Human-Caused Climate Change Signal Emerges from the Noise

ScienceDaily (Nov. 29, 2012) ­ By comparing simulations from 20 different computer models to satellite observations, Lawrence Livermore climate scientists and colleagues from 16 other organizations have found that tropospheric and stratospheric temperature changes are clearly related to human activities.
